Chatea St. Jean’s life started in 1920, when it was built as a summer home for Ernest and Maude Goff. It is located in Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near the legendary Kenwood, California. While the 250 acres of land were originally planted with white grapes, Prohibition encouraged the planting of prunes and walnuts instead. When Chateau St. Jean was founded in 1973, the chateau was restored and opened to the public in honor of the Goff family. As the company says, “only the finest” from their wines, and they delivered on that promise in quick time. In 1999, Chateau St. Jean’s 1996 Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon won “Wine of the Year,” making the chateau the first Sonoma winery to receive this award.

Chateau St. Jean was one of the pioneers in vineyard designation, stressing the importance of a grape’s origin. They didn’t just talk the talk - they took grapes from successful vineyards and made individually labeled Chardonnays, Read more »

  • Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cépages Sonoma County 2010

    Snoothrank:

    More blue than red purple color. Green woody nose with a fair amount of earthiness. Gentle hit of cassis on introduction, but lots more going on. Again, Im getting a green viney thing, but definitely not in your face. Dark chocolate with only the suggestion of bitterness. A full-bodied wine, but not a brute. On the other hand it is not a...

  • Chateau St Jean Merlot California 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this last night 12/8/13 with some good friends. I think the company made the wine better than it actually is. Dark Berry taste with a smooth, very few tanins. Almost a moist texture, Really high alcohol which didnt really attract me to it. However, good value and good sipping on a cold evening. Read More
